[ cheers and applause ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: i'm jimmy. i'm the host of the show. thank you for watching. thank you for coming. [ cheers and applause ] looking around. i don't know how this group got through the secret service, but i'm glad you did. we have a senator. maybe even future president of the united states in the house. bernie sanders is here. [ cheers and applause ] bernie sanders has ignited a lot of passion, primarily among young people. and the incredible thing is he did it without posting even a single nude selfie. [ laughter ] bernie can get very fired up. i watch him on these debates. but remember, if it seems like he's yelling at you, it's because he is yelling at you and you deserve it. [ laughter ] my favorite part about watching
always got his finger up like he's trying to flag down a waiter to get the check. it's like -- bernie was on the ballot in there was a primary in arizona and caucuses in idaho and utah. donald trump was behind in the polls in utah. utah is not particularly friendly territory for donald trump because most of the voters [ laughter ] it's a largely mormon state. but according to -- according to a new poll, 60% of republicans say they're embarrassed by their candidates in the primary so far. that's -- that means almost 40% of republicans aren't embarrassed by their candidates in the primary so far. [ laughter ] how can that be? when he's asked why he thinks so many of his fellow republicans are embarrassed, donald trump said, what's embarrassed? what is it? [ laughter ] some people who do not support donald trump are taking a more active role in expressing his
wilmington, north carolina. [ cheers and applause ] usually the voters who veer so far to the right like donald trump. so obviously, jeb is still a little bit upset. [ laughter ] donald trump sat down for an interview with cnn yesterday where he took on a wide range of topics including hillary clinton. >> she is -- doesn't know me. she doesn't know my policy. she doesn't know what i'm going to be doing. and she certainly doesn't know what i'm going to be saying today at 5:00. >> i think that makes two of you. [ laughter ] right? no way he knows what he's going to be saying at 5:00. but i will say this, for all the negative stuff donald trump puts out there, for all the insults and threats and general of love. in fact, he spread so much love we boiled it down aoiled it down and pieced it together to make this powerful donald trump love bomb. >> i love this country.
>> i love the old days. >> i love free trade. >> i love my company. >> i love building buildings. >> i love what i'm doing. >> i love hopping around. turn. >> i love nascar. >> i love you potatoes. >> we love people that -- >> i love that sign. >> i love to bring my people up. >> i love helping people. >> i love howie kurtz. >> i love sheriff joe. >> i love my father. >> i love these people. >> i love tough people. >> i love my protesters. >> i love this guy over here. >> i love women. >> and i love them. >> i love my life. >> i love the military. >> i love great generals. >> i love the vets. >> i love the wounded warriors. >> i love china. china's great. >> i love mexico. >> i love the mexican people. >> i love the hispanics. >> i love the saudis. >> i love israel. >> i love the evangelicals. >> i love the mormons. >> i love south carolina. >> i love iowa. >> i love nashville. >> i love you ohio. >> i love idaho. >> i love nevada. >> i love new hampshire. >> i love florida. >> i love georgia. >> i do love virginia. >> i love you people. >> i love you. >> i love you. >> i love you. >> i love you. >> i love you.
>> i love you all. >> i love you. >> i love you! i love you. >> i love the poorly educated. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: the first thing you have to learn is to love yourself, and clearly he does. meanwhile, one of donald trump's most high-profile supporters, former alaska governor sarah palin, is working on a new gig. sarah palin, this came out today, is planning to host a new reality courtroom show. she would be the judge. the show doesn't have a title yet but they're thinking about calling it "terrible idea." [ laughter ] unlike judge joe brown or judge judy, sarah palin does not have a law degree. but she's never been one to let a lack of qualification for a job slow her down. [ laughter ] shouldn't she have to wait for the next president to appoint a new tv judge? [ laughter ] it's a strange thing. people wanting to run the country are now hosting reality shows and people hosting reality
we live in a very confusing [ laughter ] sometimes i'll forget to put my shoes on. [ applause ] meanwhile, speaking of reality tv judges, last night on abc we had the premiere of "dancing with the stars," a new season. the lowest score of the night went to geraldo rivera, which [ laughter ] i thought he'd be great. but one of the high scores went to a model named mile nile demarco, who happens to be deaf. he wouldn't hear that screaming. [ laughter ] not only knts he can't he hear the music-e can't hear the sound vibrations which is how a lot of deaf people listen to music. he has to follow along and do what his partner does. which is incredible on its own and even more incredible when you factor in his very enthusiastic sign language interpreter. >> at first i was like hot! and then i was like, wow. you're actually in the pocket. you didn't just have great rhythm.
you brought the rhythm -- [ applause ] >> jimmy: really embellishing. next season that interpreter is going to be one of the dancing stars. [ laughter ] he's already more famous than half the other people on the show. it's interesting how famous people react when their fame starts to wane. you've got "dancing with the stars." a lot of celebrities when they get older will do these ads you see on the cable news channels. i saw cindy williams, who played shirley on "laverne & shirley" home nursing service. which is just weird. chuck woolery does the ads for the willow curve. william devane i think tells people to buy gold. maybe i watch too much cable news in the daytime. i was wondering what i'm going to do when i become a very handsome old man with a lot of plastic surgery. and so i traveled to the future to watch television. that turns out that's what and i happened upon this commercial which was able to here it is. future you.
advertisement for first nationwide providence. is it? things just seem to move a little bit faster these days. we get older and they get hi. i'm disgraced former talk show host jimmy kimmel. [ laughter ] and if you're looking for peace of mind, it's time to call first nationwide providence. first nationwide providence is for people like you and me. what do they do? i have absolutely no idea. [ laughter ] but i don't need to. and neither do you. should you give them your money? yes. how much? all of it probably. what will they do with it in there's no way of knowing. but the name sounds important and comforting and, well, that's good enough for me. first nationwide providence. it's a low price to pay for whatever the hell it is they do.
is a pyramid scheme. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: we're going to be rich. we have to take a break. when we come back, my pal guillermo and i help some children with their homework. so stick around. we'll be right back. chrnz chrpz [ cheers and applause ] whatcha gonna do when you get outta here? i'm gonna have some fun! what do you consider fun? fun, natural fun! ow! i'm in heaven with my boyfriend, my laughing boyfriend. steppin' in a rhythm to a funky flow. who needs to think when your feet just go? whatcha gonna do when you get outta here? i'm gonna have some fun! fun, natural fun! baby! what body aches? what knee pain? what sore elbow? advil liqui-gels make pain a distant memory

>> jimmy: hi there. welcome back. tonight we have granger smith, tom hiddleston and senator bernie sandters on the way. first there's a victory for marijuana enthusiasts in colorado. the supreme court yesterday dismiss a lawsuit that would have declared colorado's pot legalization unconstitutional. they said they will not hear the case, which means pot will
that doesn't surprise me. the supreme court, they're a bunch of stoners. [ laughter ] who else wears a robe in the middle of the day? [ laughter ] clarence thomas is so high he's only spoken once in like ten years. [ laughter ] the lawsuit was -- actually, the lawsuit was filed by the other states. oklahoma and nebraska filed the suit. which is interesting to me because i had no idea that oklahoma and nebraska were a couple of total narcs. [ laughter ] it's like your little brother trying to get you in trouble for not taking him to the party. but they claim that their marijuana is making its way across the border from colorado into their states. which let's put the map up. look at this. colorado barely, barely has a border with oklahoma. it's like your neighbor two blocks away complaining you're having a party that's too loud. and you'd think nebraska would support marijuana. they grow corn. it's the main ingredient in doritos, for god's sake.
[ cheers and applause ] anyone who knows me knows that i am very passionate when it comes to learning. in fact, in addition to my hosting duties on this show guillermo and i have co-hosted an educational program on a local access channel. how long have we been doing this now? >> for 40 years. >> jimmy: 40 years we've been doing this. [ laughter ] so grab your number 2 pencils. 40 years? [ laughter ] we have been helping children do their homework since we were children doing our homework. but here it is, tonight's edition of the homework helper guys. >> science and geography. mathematics and anatomy. physics and biology. if you want to get wise call the home wok helper guys. >> jimmy: good afternoon and welcome to the "homework helper guys." we are the homework helper guys. i'm mr. kimmel. this is mr. guillermo. we're here to help you with your
now. where we have two young men. hello there. what are your names? >> i'm brennan and this is liam. >> jimmy: brennan and liam. and you're brothers? >> jimmy: and you're dressed the same i see. >> yep. glasses. >> yeah. i wear glasses because my sight's worse. >> jimmy: your eyesight is worse. two brothers. >> yep. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: what can we help you with today? >> my subject is ancient egypt. a pyramid pointed at the top. unscramble these letters. the letters are -- >> jimmy: hold on. we've got to unscramble letters. what are they? >> l, i, b, e, s, o, k.
well, i'll tell you something right now. this is something guillermo says a lot. "s okay." [ laughter ] guillermo-u came in late to work today. what did you say? >> s ok. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: that's that, i guess. this is lib. or maybe this is bill if we spich it switch it around. okay. bill. let's say bill. bill rear-ended your car but there was no damage. what would you say? >> bill, es ok. esok? >> yeah. >> jimmy: is that it? is that all your homework? is it done now? >> that looks like it. >> jimmy: it looks like it. i'm going to leave you today with a little joke. and the joke is this. >> es ok. >> jimmy: no, that's not the joke. the joke is why did the boy eat his homework?
a piece of cake. good one, right? all right. go to sleep. if you want to get wise, call the homework helper guys >> jimmy: who says learning isn't fun? tonight on the show we have music from granger smith. tom hiddleston is here. and we'll be right back with senator bernie sanders.

>> jimmy: welcome back to the show. tonight from the new movie "i saw the light" tom hiddleston is here with us. and then this is his"remington." granger smith. [ applause ] tomorrow night kristen bell, jon bernthal and music from locash. and on thursday, hillary clinton, peter krause, and fifth harmony will be with us. so please join us. [ cheers and applause ] you know, it used to be when somebody talked about feeling the burn they needed a shot of penicillin. but our first guest has turned it into a rallying cry for millions of young americans. he has emerged from vermont to
please welcome senator bernie sanders. [ cheers and applause ] very good to have you here. >> great to be with you. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: is it -- have you gotten acclimated to coming to l.a. where a year ago nobody knew who you were and now teenagers and young people are cheering you? >> it is a bit of a shock. yes, it is. but it's a good shock. i'll take it. >> jimmy: you have secret service protection. >> yeah. >> jimmy: and all the top candidates do. tonight you were out walking around on hollywood boulevard just talking to people. and you did that when we were in brooklyn together last time too. >> exactly. i love doing that. that's what i've done my whole life.
service hate when you do that? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: they don't like that. >> but you know, it brings you into the real world and kind of breaks through the isolation. people out there. it's just nice to say hello. >> jimmy: i have to admit to you, when you were on our show in october when we were in brooklyn, i thought, this is a very smart guy. he has some very interesting ideas. he obviously loves his country. but there's no way we'll still be seeing him in march. and yet here you are. [ cheers and applause ] i mean, i don't -- it might be too simple a question to say are you surprised? but are you surprised by this? >> yes and no. i thought the message that we had, that there's something wrong with the middle class in this country, it's disappearing. people are working longer hours for low wages. we have so much poverty and almost all new income and wealth is going to the top 1%. i did know that was a message
the other message, it spreads progressives. people are really angry about a corrupt campaign finance system that allows very, very wealthy people to spend unlimited sums of money to buy elections. people don't think that's what democracy of this country is supposed to be about. [ applause ] >> jimmy: obviously, there was a terror attack in brussels today, which was a horrible thing. and in times when we are under attack or our allies are under attack, it seems that americans gravitate toward the candidate who talks the toughest. in this case i think donald trump after the attacks in paris his popularity shot up. why do you think that is? >> i think people get afraid. and for good reasons. isis is a disgusting, barbaric organization. we've seen what they've done in paris, what they've done in brussels. people are afraid of an attack in the united states. but i think what we have to understand is we're not going to undermine the constitution of
order to effectively destroy isis. we can do that. so our goal in this issue is to destroy isis in coalition with muslim nations on the ground, with the support of the united states and other major powers. i think we can do that. we are making some progress. we have much more to do. and secondly, of course, we have to protect our own nation. and that means better intelligence sharing. making sure that we stop young people from becoming terrorists through social media, et cetera. and we're working on that. but at the end of the day we cannot allow the trumps of the world to use these incidents to attack all of the muslim people in the world. that is unfair -- [ cheers and applause ] you know, to imply that because somebody is a muslim they're a terrorist, that is an outrageous statement. equally so when he talks about mexicans coming over the borders as rapists or criminals.
we don't need in my view a candidate for president hurling these types of insults. >> jimmy: i will say that when i think about donald trump and i think about you i can imagine him dropping a bomb on a house that might contain innocent people. i cannot imagine you doing that. would you be prepared to do that or -- >> well, i hope nobody ever drops on a bomb containing innocent -- >> jimmy: but of course when you're fighting terrorism that happens. >> it does. and obviously, if i were elected president of the united states i would use the military forces of our country in an effective and appropriate way. and that's what a president does. so if the question is -- you know, i think as somebody who voted against the war in iraq i think we have to be careful about how we use military force because sometimes we don't see the unintended consequence. you know, saddam hussein was a terrible dictator but i kind of had the feeling, get rid of him you create a political vacuum,
but there are times when you do have to use force, and i certainly would be prepared to do that. >> jimmy: guillermo, you wanted to clap? guillermo was about to clap. there you go. you had three contests tonight -- arizona, idaho, and utah. >> yeah. >> jimmy: do you feel like -- we don't know what the results are at this time. do you feel optimistic about winning any of those states? >> oh, yeah. i do. you never can tell. and i'm not much into speculation. but we were in salt lake city. and remember, utah's one of the more conservative states in the country. we had 14,000 people out at a rally in salt lake city. there was a poll that just came out in utah. for the first time in 50 years -- this is a state that almost never votes for a democratic candidate for president. we were beating donald trump by 10 points in utah. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: that's crazy. who tells you -- who keeps you up to date on the election results, the exit polls, et cetera? do you watch those on the cable
>> sometimes depending on the state there are exit polls. we often have access to them. but like everybody else, if it's a close election we're watching the television at 1:00 in the morning. >> jimmy: do you have cable at home? >> yeah. >> jimmy: i don't imagine you frivolously watching television. i imagine you're a relatively serious guy. if you are elected president, will we still have like the easter egg roll? would there be -- would we still pardon the turkey on thanksgiving? >> only if all of the children are very, very serious about that roll. >> jimmy: i see. [ laughter ] >> no frivolity in my presidency. it's all work, no pleasure. [ applause ] >> jimmy: you and mrs. clinton, hillary clinton, do you ever speak privately? do you have private time together or phone calls? >> yeah, occasionally. >> jimmy: is that to congratulate each other on winning a state or do you sometimes call and say hey -- >> we've often -- we've debated a number of times and before the debate we can sit down and chat.
numbers, they say they're york times" poll. same with donald trump. his unfavorability is higher. do you feel like you're contributing to that? >> no, i don't. i think what i have tried to do in this campaign is focus on the real issues impacting the american people. and that is something that sometimes is very hard to do through the media because the media is not necessarily interested. >> jimmy: we like the fun stuff. >> that's right. or the dramatic stuff. that's right. but we have been very careful about not attacking secretary clinton in any kind of a personal way. other people do that. we have not. we focus on the issues. but i think our success is that we are touching a nerve with the american people. whether it is people's understanding that we have to act boldly in climate change -- give you another example. we are talking now about making public colleges and universities tuition-free and lowering student debt. [ cheers and applause ] and everybody knows, you know, we tell the young people, go out
then they end up with 30, 50, 100 thousand dollars in debt. we need the best engt educated workforce in the wormd. why are we punishing kids for doing what they should be doing? [ applause ] thing. there's a big difference between the secretary and myself. is we raise money in a very unusual way for modern politics. we get it from the middle class and working class of this country. we've gotten over 5 million individual contributions. 27 bucks apiece. berniesanders.com. [ laughter ] if anyone's watching. secretary -- and i don't have a super pac. secretary clinton has a super pac. gets a lot of money from wall street and other -- >> jimmy: i know you don't have a super pac. and i just want to give you something because i know you -- but i did get you a fanny pack. [ laughter ] [ applause ] senator bernie sanders is here. we'll be right back. performance sales event...

you're flying coach everywhere you go. somebody tweeted this photograph of you and said you were watching "the bodyguard." were you watching "the bodyguard"? >> no. >> jimmy: you were not. [ laughter ] >> actually, i like that movie very much but i don't think i was watching it. >> jimmy: this election feels like it's been going on forever. does feel that way to you? >> it has been going on forever. >> jimmy: there's still a long way to go. >> yeah, it is. i'm not quite sure that this is the best way to elect a president of the united states, to be honest with you. i think it is a process which is neverending. and i think we've got to think about a different way. >> jimmy: there's a big difference between running for president and being president. >> absolutely. absolutely. and i think being president is having great people around you, the smartest people, most knowledgeable people, and dealing with the important issues facing our country. it's not necessarily, you know, spending 15 hours a day seven days a week running around the country. >> jimmy: it is interesting in this day of modern technology
have to shake people's hands. >> absolutely. >> jimmy: you have to call them on the telephone. you were doing that today i heard? >> to me what has been most gratifying is we have a lot of rallies around the state. that's kind of a feature of our campaign. i think we're going to be in san diego tonight probably at 15,000, 20,000 people out. and i enjoy that. it's really an opportunity for people to come together. you see the glow in people's eyes, the hope that people have that we can improve this country and make it what i think all of us know we can. so that's very inspiring. >> jimmy: have you ever met donald trump? >> no. and i didn't go to his wedding either. let me be very clear about that. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: that's a thing. donald trump -- hillary clinton at donald trump's wedding. i think i asked her about this the last time she was here. it makes it feel like the whole thing is professional wrestling. it makes it feel like you've got the bad guy and the good guy and the good guy and the bad guy and behind the scenes everybody's watching each other shower. [ laughter ]
in that shower room. [ applause ] jfrmt i >> jimmy: i know you support states' rights to legalize marijuana. you also said you smoked it a couple of times, it's not your thing. what's your sning thing? do you have a thing? >> yeah, my thing is my grandchildren. >> jimmy: you smoke your grandchildren? [ laughter ] >> we are very blessed, jane and i are very blessed. we have seven beautiful, beautiful grandchildren, and they're a delight. we try to spend as much time as we can. >> jimmy: we talked about the income inequality and the top 1% having a huge percentage of the money. do you think there should be a limit on how much an american can make? >> i would approach it another way. i think when we have cities like flint, michigan where children -- and i've got to tell you. i was there. and it was one of the most painful things i've ever experienced. listening to parents who tell me about what happens to the cognitive capabilities of their children when they are poisoned
that is painful. and it's not just flint, michigan all over this country. we have deteriorating schools. we have people who are not getting the health care they need. not getting the -- not getting the jobs, unemployment for kids off the charts. and yet you have a handful of people, you have the 20 wealthiest people in this country owning more wealth than the bottom half of america. 150 million people, jimmy. and i don't think that's what america should be about. and i do believe we should raise taxes on upper-income people and large profitable corporations. that is my view. >> jimmy: you're not a republican, i guess. here's an interesting thing. because most republicans are not wealthy people. but they also kind of go along with that principle. >> that's the corruption of the campaign finance system. if you're going to run for president you need many hundreds of billions of dollars. let me give you one example. i'm on the senate environmental committee. i've talked to scientists all over the world. climate change is real. it's caused by human activity.
republican candidate prepared to say that. >> jimmy: isn't that crazy? >> it is crazy. but it's more than crazy. the reason for it is the day they say, it they come on your show and say it, their campaign funding is cut by the koch brothers and the fossil fuel industry. >> jimmy: didn't lindsey graham, doesn't he -- >> maybe vaguely. but look, we've got an international crisis with climate change, and what the scientists tell us, if we don't move quickly you're going to see more droughts, more floods, rising sea levels. we've got a crisis. and these guys hope -- trump, for example, thinks it's a hoax created by the chinese for all people. all right? [ laughter ] but the truth is if they stood up and did the right thing the koch brothers and the big money fossil fuel industry people would not fund their campaigns. that is how corrupt our current campaign finance system is. >> jimmy: i know you have to get to san diego. you've got a big rally there. i thank you for stopping by. i wish you a lot of luck. senator bernie sanders, everybody. we'll be right back with tom

politics? have you been following our presidential election? >> well, i'm british, as you may have noticed. >> jimmy: yes, i did. >> so i've also -- i was feeling the bern tonight, i have to say. >> jimmy: were you? [ cheers ] >> i met him backstage. he seemed like a very pleasant fellow. >> jimmy: are you guys laughing at us following our election and all the craziness that's going on? >> we had our general election last year, and it was similarly crazy. >> jimmy: was it really? >> yeah. it's an interesting time in the world. you know. >> jimmy: who was your donald trump over there? do you have one? [ laughter ] >> nigel faraj. >> jimmy: nigel faraj? >> and let's not give him any air time. >> jimmy: most people in the united states know you from "thor," the "avengers" movies. you have a show on the bbc that is coming to the united states. >> that's right. yeah. >> jimmy: what is the name of that show? >> "the night manager." >> jimmy: what i heard, i have a
james bond-s as a result of that show, which is about espionage and whatnot, that people are talk about the possibility that you might be the next james bond. >> right. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: is that just talk or -- >> honestly, i play a british spy in "the night manager." so people i think have made the link. but honestly i feel like -- >> jimmy: you're experienced. you have spy experience. would you want to be james bond? >> in -- i mean, as somebody who grew up with sean connery and roger moore, when you mention it there's a part of me that goes, really? are you kidding? but i feel like who's going to be the next james bond is -- it's one of the nation's favorite pub conversations. it's up there with like who's going to win "x factor" and when is the england national side going to live up to its full potential and is britain going to leave the e.u. and all that
>> jimmy: would the united kingdom accept an american james bond? myself, for instance. [ laughter ] >> possibly. are you going to audition? i feel like larry david would make a good james bond. >> jimmy: yeah, he would be a great james bond. we have a british superman. it really seems only fair that there might be an american james bond one day. that's like the most revolt thing i could say, right? [ applause ] >> i'll put a good word in next time. >> jimmy: well, you're playing an american icon, hank williams, who's one of the great singers in country and western music. did you know about hank williams before this movie? >> it's funny. i knew about hank as much as -- i feel like as a young brit watching american movies, they're so exotic. that's probably something you guys take for granted. but the fabric of americana is very exotic for us. so every time a hero would walk into a diner and order a milkshake and a burger there would be hank williams playing on the jukebox.
i think they say hey good looking is one of those songs like happy birthday, you can start singing it anywhere in the world and people will start -- >> jimmy: oh, really? >> yeah. people will start singing along. >> jimmy: it rhymes so beautifully. do you meet with hank williams jr. to ask him about his dad and study him? how do you go about doing something like this? >> hank jr. i think it's a very sensitive time for him. and he knew about the film. i actually met his sister, who's full sister. >> jimmy: i see. >> jimmy: yes. she's great, holly, by the way. she's a great musician. and they approved of your performance, i assume? >> it's all good. holly was really sweet. and i think she's really proud of it. and she feels like i did -- i did him proud. >> jimmy: is that intimidating,
to have to learn to sing like really a national treasure? >> yeah. i took it quite seriously. i take the responsibility seriously. i knew as a british actor going in to play, you know, such a loved icon of american music i had to kind of -- >> jimmy: because we'll shoot you or something if you don't. [ laughter ] go crazy. >> i was very dedicated. i went down to nashville and i lived with a musician called rodney crowell. >> jimmy: oh, yeah. rodney crowell. >> and he -- >> jimmy: he let you live with him? >> he did. i don't know who would do that. i can yodel now. there comes a time in a man's life when he's called upon to yodel. >> jimmy: every once in a while. >> for me it happened a little later -- >> jimmy: by the way, now i have to ask you to yodel. you realize that. [ cheers and applause ] you can't just -- you can't just
yodel now and then not yodel. >> i walked right into than, didn't i? >> jimmy: although you realize if you do yodel you will never be james bond. james bond does not yodel in any situation. so you have a huge decision here to make. >> which would you like me to do? >> jimmy: i'd love you to yodel. i really would. >> there's a fantastic hank williams song called "long gone lonesome blues." he starts off by singing about going down to the river to watch the fish swim by. then he says -- he's lonesome and he's learning about it. the chorus goes -- go and i am low and blue [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: you can stay. tom hiddleston, everybody. "i saw the light" opens friday. we'll be right back with granger
